I gnaw my cursed wings and crash down on an untouched land where I am a monster undercover.
Because of my eyes slanted by your pliers, my gaze is diffracting and releasing a blurred identity.
The starting point here is an assembly between the body, the voice and everyday objects. These materials are often misused, disarticulated and curved, their clattering causing a truncated transmutation.
It is an inaccurately monstrous solo that conjures an aggregate of performative elements, which embody rotting, crappy images, up. It is like an interruption in the middle of a process.
This set of practices and speculations reveals the hypothetical potential of a human physicality that absurdly dodges normativity, as a distortion of legitimacy and as a joke about the dominant ideas in society's unconscious.
My intention is to explore an ambiguity that subverts the prosaic, through a recurring thematic of monsters, these fantastic creatures representing the margins of society, my unconscious and my interiority repressed.
Funkenstein propagates a confused perception and disseminates an affective ambivalence.
